Israeli regime makes yet another nefarious plan for the Occupied East Jerusalem Al Quds
JERUSALEM - The Israeli regime reportedly plans to build 9,000 settler units between two Palestinian neighborhoods in the occupied east Jerusalem al-Quds.
The anti-settlement monitoring group Peace Now said on Tuesday that the details of the plan — the first such project in the city in more than 20 years — emerged a day after Israel's transport ministry approved a controversial proposal to extend a train line from Tel Aviv into the occupied Old City of East Jerusalem al-Quds, Press TV has reported.
The settlement units, as Peace Now stated, would be built on the site of Atarot airport located in northern al-Quds and between two Palestinian neighborhoods.
The watchdog group warned that the planned construction would drive "a wedge in the heart of the Palestinian urban continuity between Ramallah and East Jerusalem [al-Quds], thus preventing the establishment of a viable Palestinian state with its capital in East Jerusalem [al-Quds]."
Peace now added that the plan "also includes the demolition of dozens of Palestinian residential units” that were built in the area throughout the years.
Under a so-called Middle East peace plan unveiled last month by the US, Israel will have sovereignty over all of al-Quds as well as settlements in the occupied territories.
